LibriVox recording of Pamela, by Samuel Richardson.

"Now first published in order to cultivate the Principles of Virtue and Religion in the Minds of the Youth of Both Sexes.
A Narrative which has its Foundation in Truth and Nature; and at the same time that it agreeably entertains, by a Variety of curious and affecting Incidents, is intirely divested of all those Images, which, in too many Pieces calculated for Amusement only, tend to inflame the Minds they should instruct."(From the frontspiece of the first edition)

Pamela tells the story of a 14 year old lady's maid named Pamela whose master, Mr. B., makes unwanted advances towards her. She rejects him continually. In Pamela's letters to her "poor but exemplary parents" the story unfolds and we learn her fate. (summary by Annise)

Subject: Response to "Suffering"
It IS an agonizing work to to read. That's why listening to this recording is so much better. I can bake bread, tidy up the house, or sit in traffic--all while listening to Pamela's adolescent patter. I feel the reader does a fine job of capturing Pamela's personality. And I'm still amazed at Richardson's ability to channel a sweet, bright young girl's thoughts. While the very notion that Pamela, or anyone, ought to be writing pious letters to her parents on her wedding night is laughable--I hope for her sake Mr. B has drunk himself into unconsciousness--I believe this novel provides some wonderful insights into British eighteenth-century popular culture.
